The San Francisco Giants lost their third and final game of the series to the San Diego Padres. It also gave the Padres the series win they desperately needed after a five-game losing streak.
It’s not often a team can score seven points and still lose, but the Giants accomplished that feat. The Padres’ absurd 13 runs were just too many to overcome.
This loss left San Francisco Giants fans confused about the state of the team. They now have many questions about the future. The Giants and their fans hoped they would make a playoff push. That, however, seems to be in doubt now.
With the Los Angeles Dodgers far ahead in the National League West race, a wildcard spot is their only option.
That series loss was the most recent way the Giants disappointed their fan base.
Compared to 2021, this season has been quite downgraded for Giants fans. They hoped to be the best team in MLB, now some fans are hoping the season will end soon.
The San Diego Padres are matched only by the Dodgers in their star power. Despite the strength of their division rivals, the Giants still expected to be legitimate contenders. As time passes and losses mount, the reality of the situation sets in. If the San Francisco Giants can’t keep the momentum going, their season will end in disappointment.
Losses like these are always devastating to a fan base. The Giants offense showed up and played at a high level, but the bullpen didn’t.
While the MLB season hasn’t gone San Francisco’s way, they may have better luck in the NFL.
The San Diego Padres rebounded from a losing streak against the San Francisco Giants.
The San Diego Padres will look to build on that series win over the San Francisco Giants in their playoff push
The San Diego Padres have one of the busiest rosters in recent memory. With Manny Machado, Juan Soto and soon Fernando Tatis Jr., the Padres are an offensive juggernaut. This match proved that even if their team gives up seven points, they can still score enough to win.
While 13 carries per game isn’t sustainable, it likely won’t be the last time these Padres hit that mark. If the San Diego Padres can build on this series win, we’ll see them play through October.
